Sidescroller games?

Hi Klaus,

a sidescroller game is any game that has content scrolling horizontally.
Normally some nice background GFX scroll from left to right. This are
normally shooters or jump´n´run games. If one sets up the background as a
group one can easiely create a tile based engine. Just take some 20*20 Pixel
GFX snippets in a set of grouped buttons and create a map with it. :-)

Scrolling of groups makes it simple to create some type of PARALLAX
scrolling. That´s different groups scrolling at different speeds.
This leads to a nice 3D (or 2.5 D to be exact) effect.

Maybe there is time that we can discuss these topics in detail on Malta.
